a fine day

the sky was more blue than grey and white today, which meant cold frozen air and ground but sunshine and there was no wind, amazing, like something good coming back from far distant history, so I decided to go for a walk to the little cove at the mouth of the Dell river. 541 more words


Shooting at Soval House

It’s been a fantastic start to 2015 at Soval House. Despite the Isle of Lewis being the primary target for THAT weather bomb and being battered by the worst storms the island has seen for 10 years, our plucky guests would not be deterred and headed out in the gales for goose flighting, deerstalking and walked up woodcock. 190 more words

Country Life


it is so unusual for the island to have snow, especially snow that stays, of course if it stays too long I might not be so pleased to see it, I know and realise some of you have far too much snow each winter but with the warm sea all around this small island it is usually too warm for snow, what I enjoy most is that the white landscape makes the light so much stronger, even with grey dark skies the light landscape lights up the scene, these first four photos were taken from the front door as it became light which is why there is the blue cast of night still. 279 more words
